How to Save Your Teenage Child From Substance Abuse With Wilderness Therapy

Signs to Look For if You Suspect Your Teenager Has a Substance Abuse Problem

For parents who are concerned with the possibility that their child is taking drugs, or perhaps experiencing a problem with alcohol, it can be a very scary time. Teenage substance abuse can have long-term physical effects, especially because their brains are still developing. Furthermore, this abuse's influence will most likely extend into an adolescent's behavioral patterns. To know for certain if your child may be abusing, here are a few signs to search for:

* Have their grades suddenly dropped?

* Are their eyes often bloodshot?

* Do they burst out laughing for no apparent reason?

* Has your child lost interest in activities he or she used to enjoy?

* Has your child's personal appearance diminished?

These are just a few symptoms, but if you've suspected substance abuse and have recently witnessed any of these signs in your child, it is time to address your concerns. Ask the right questions with the appropriate tone to encourage your child to be honest with you. Please do not overreact if they admit to abuse. It is far more important to begin discussing how to help the situation. However, if they deny abuse, ensure to remain supportive and insist that help is always available if needed.
